Online access to GP health records – what’s in it for patients? (The Patients' Association)


Event details

More than 1,400 English GP practices, around one in five, offer patients access to their prospective medical records: that means patients can see new entries to their medical records such as tests results, appointment notes and hospital letters online and through the NHS App and certain other apps. This webinar aimed at patients explains more about NHS England's programme to enable patients to access their medical records via the NHS App. 

Hear from:

  • Patients Association members Claude and Greta about what the benefits are to them of being able to access their health information digitally
  • GP Dr Brian McMillan, a Senior Clinical Lecturer at the Centre for Primary Care and Health Services Research, University of Manchester, and a Registered Health Psychologist, whose research interests include how digital technology can improve patients' experiences of primary care
  • Registered nurse Tristan Stanton who is Assistant Director of Programmes – Primary Care, at NHS England and leads the programme to give people access to their online health records.
  • The Patients Association's Chief Executive, Rachel Power, will chair the webinar.
